EDGAR CO. (ECWd) - During the Special Edgar County Board meeting this morning at the Kreckman Building, Mr. Dale English was recommended by Chairman Ben Jenness as a replacement to the District 3 seat vacated by the resignation of Chris Patrick.
The Board concured with his recommendation and appointed Dale English to the vacant District 3 seat of the Edgar County Board.
In other business, the board aproved hiring a firm to assist in the bidding and obtaining of insurance for the County for a three year contract in the amount of $4700 for the first year, with Mike Heltsley being the only "NO" vote. Don't know why he would vote "no", as this has the potential to save the County tens of thousands of dollars every year by getting competative bids for our various insurance policies.
The Board also talked about putting an item on next week's regular meeting agenda to approve obtaining local financing for Edgar County's portion of the grant funds that will be used for various airport projects coming up.
